Study in the UK Session

By admin,News Posted Jun 29,2015

AlMawred Education Services in collaboration with Navitas, a leading global education provider hosted an event “Study in the UK Session” on June 12, 2015 at Words BookstoreCafe to provide prospective students an insight on what it is like to study in the UK. What made our event special is that a lucky winner was going to receive 3000 pounds scholarship to kick-start his/her studies in a university of their choice! Navitas is global education provider that delivers a range of educational services to more than 120 colleges in 27 countries. The Universities that participated under Navitas’ umbrella are; the University of Hertfordshire, Plymouth University, Birmingham City University, University of Portsmouth, Swansea University, Anglia Ruskin University and Edinburgh Napier University. This event was focused mostly on undergraduate students to equip them with all they need to know about studying abroad.

We’ve invited three alumni from different universities in the UK to share their experience on studying and living abroad. First was Ahmed Hamada who pursued his masters in Anglia Ruskin University, Mohammed Al Raeesi who studied in the University of Portsmouth and finally Nikhil who studied in Birmingham. Each Alumni has shared his own perspective on what it’s like to study in the UK, in terms of the lifestyle, living cost, education, security, diversity, the clubs and support that they’ve received from the university and the Do’s and Don’ts. We loved watching the students interact and mingle with our alumni and asking questions, we can go on and on about the universities’ rankings and courses, but it’s nice to hear it from someone who has experienced it first-hand. Kim from Navitas and Naeema AlBalooshi from AlMawred Education were so thrilled to announce the winner of the raffle at the end of the event. Maram Al Aali, one of the attendees, was the lucky winner of a 3000 pounds scholarship to a university of her choice! Maram has applied to pursue a degree in Architecture at Birmingham City University International College. We wish her best of luck, and can’t wait to see where this would take her!

University Visits at AlMawred Offices

By admin,News Posted Nov 04,2014

Finding the right major and university for you is a big decision, especially if you are looking to study abroad! There are too many questions to ask about the major, campus, accommodation, the student life, the city itself and security, and sometimes researching it online would only add more options and confusion on what’s suitable for you and your needs. Thus, Al Mawred believes in meeting with the universities here in Bahrain to learn about all the details, and sometimes get an offer on the spot if the students has all his documents. In our latest events in early June, we were pleased to welcome Kent University, Leeds Beckett University, Northampton University, Euro Centers, and Cambridge Education Group at AlMawred Education offices in Riffa. This was a great opportunity for the students to learn about the different universities and raise any concerns they have, as well as meet representatives of the universities who would provide the necessary guidance and would suggest or recommend things like the most suitable accommodation, the location, the Do’s and Don’ts, places to go, places to eat, and more! AlMawred hosts different universities frequently for the students to explore their options and benefit from them. Make sure to keep an eye on our website for news and updates for the next visits!

  • RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH- take some time to learn not only about the university and major you will be taking, but the country and the local’s custom and culture
  • Refresh your language skills, even if you’re going for a language program, try to learn the basics to be able to get around
  • Have a check-list before you leave- Make sure all your documents are with you when traveling and in the airport, and always have extra copies!
  • Remember that getting lost often times is the best thing that could happen to you, so don’t panic, you will eventually find your way around by exploring- and might find really interesting hidden spots in while you’re at it
  • Talk to the locals and embrace diversity, but also don’t feel the need to change yourself, take pride in your culture and educate others about it
  • Keep up to date with the currency exchange
  • Always remember your country’s embassy is there to help you
